The Luminous Pearl Of Her Appointed Plenitude
Painting - Oil On Canvas
I wanted to do another painting in the Umbrella Girl series. I didn't have a clear theme in mind, except to continue the qualities of self-assurance, mystery and grace which run through this series. I knew I wanted the ocean as an element, and had the idea of a woman sitting on a rock, but didn't have much beyond that. I had the model sit on a white inflated exercise ball - as it was handier than a boulder and captured some various poses. Once I saw the images, the idea of her sitting on a giant pearl immediately struck me. And since she was looking down in the photo I liked the best, there needed to be an object of her attention. Thus the concept was born. The pearl here is a symbol of wisdom, spiritual transformation and wealth. And the butterfly represents physical transformation and grace. An enchantress claiming her wisdom and riches.
